A friend recommended a book called 'The Madonnas of Leningrad' by Debra Dean. I've also read 'The Siege' by Helen Dunmore. They were both very good reads. Has anyone else read anything about this period? I like both fiction and non-fiction books.
I loved The Betrayal - I thought it really captured the fear and the paranoia of the times. I liked The Siege as well, but it was more straightforwardly about survival, whereas The Betrayal shows the complexities of the late Stalinist era so well.
